Double Murder – Killed – Karl Berrain (Baltimore, MD)

Karl Berrain

Two brothers who were shot in the head in Upper Fells Point this week were killed because one of them had talked to the shooter’s girlfriend, police said Thursday.

Homicide commander Capt. Stanley Brandford said Devon Ferguson, 26, of the 3800 block of Parkmount St. was charged with first-degree murder after officers who had seen video of a man fleeing the shooting scene spotted Ferguson riding a bicycle in the area.

Brothers Kurt and Karl Berrain were shot in the head at about 4:45 p.m. in front of a home in the 200 block of S. Wolfe St. Brandford said the group had gotten into an argument earlier about four blocks away.

“Mr. Ferguson was upset because one of the Berrain brothers had spoken to his girlfriend,” Brandford said. “He thought it was inappropriate for him to do so.”

Brandford said after they exchanged words, Ferguson “stalked” the brothers and shot them.

Killed – Jevontez Deshawn Massey (Durham, NC)

male

The Durham Police Department said Monday it has charged a 16-year-old in a shooting earlier this month that left a man dead.

Markecio Barker, 16, of Durham, was captured by members of the U.S. Marshals Service Joint Fugitive Task Force.

Barker has already been indicted by a Durham grand jury on a murder charge along with 21-year-old Christopher Alexander Hicks.

Investigators say the pair is responsible for killing 22-year-old Jevontez Deshawn Massey. He was shot November 5 at Morning Glory Avenue and Belt Street around 3:45 p.m. Massey was declared dead at the hospital a short time later.

Double Murder – Killed – Shaundre’a Milhouse (Mt. Olive, NC)

Shaundrea Milhouse

MOUNT OLIVE, N.C. — Wayne County deputies have several persons of interest and are investigating several leads in a double homicide in Mount Olive that the sheriff described Wednesday as a “gruesome” and “very vindictive” crime.

Authorities were called around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday to 638 Waller Road, after family members say Tyrone Beamon Jr., 27, and Shaundrea Juanette Milhouse, 21, of Knightdale, were found dead in a bathtub of Beamon’s home.

Family members said Beamon’s 3-year-old son and Milhouse’s children – ages 4 and 9 months – were also found inside but were not harmed.

Governor Pat McCrory has announced the State will offer a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murders of Tyrone Beamon, Jr. and Shaundrea Juanette Milhouse in Mt. Olive late last year.

On November 5th, Beamon, 27, and Milhouse, 21, were found murdered in the bathtub of Beamon’s residence at 638 Waller Road in Mt. Olive.

The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office and the family of Tyrone Beamon, Jr. had previously announced $3,000 rewards each for information that leads to an arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the double homicide. Major Effler said the County requested help from the Governor and they moved quickly on the matter, having the reward money available in three weeks’ time.

The victims were discovered when Beamon’s mother became concerned after not hearing from him for a few days. Inside the home, she and neighbors found Beamon and Milhouse dead in a bath tub, and two children unhurt.

The late Sheriff Carey Winders had reported the Sheriff’s Office believed the children were in the home with the dead bodies for one or two days.

Wayne County Sheriff Carey Winders said Wednesday that investigators believe the children had been alone for at least a day or two.

The 3-year-old was able to provide some information about what he might have seen, Winders said, and detectives are evaluating that to determine if it is useful in the investigation.

Mass Shooting – Killed – Jerry Vue (Fresno, CA)

Jerry Vue1

The three officers that were injured in a shootout in Southeast Fresno Tuesday are out of the hospital and still recovering. But now the investigation begins into what appears to be a staged attack on law enforcement.

Someone called in a tip to police telling officers where wanted felon Jerry Vue had been hiding. Authorities had been looking for Vue for more than a year and sent in a specific task force to go after him.

Someone told detectives that Vue, wanted for kidnapping, rape and torture, was in an apartment complex in Southeast Fresno. A group of officers trained to go after violent criminals descended on that complex.

“One of the officers did in fact see Jerry Vue standing in the driveway, Vue looked in the officer’s direction, unknown if he knew there were officers outside,” Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said.

Vue’s nephew, standing with two kids, told officers that his uncle wasn’t home. The officers started searching when Vue jumped out from under a pile of clothes. Dyer said the officers appeared right where Vue wanted them.

“He clearly and demonstrated his intent to not be taken alive by firing at officers, ambushing officers and being involved in a running gun battle against officers,” Dyer said.

What happened next was an exchange of gun fire. A bullet proof vest saved parole agent Nate Castro’s life. A U.S. Marshal was shot near the stomach and returned fire at the same time. Sheriff’s deputy Robert McEwen was hit by shrapnel.

“There were multiple rounds fired, this was a war that went on between those two gentleman, luckily our deputy won and the bad guy didn’t, but it could have very easily gone the other way,” U.S. Marshal Albert Najera said.

Vue eventually fell and was pronounced dead and armed with a handgun. In his apartment were more guns, lots of ammunition and five pounds of marijuana. Vue was, according to federal agents a man that was good at not getting caught.

The CDCR team consisted of Special Agents Dennis Reitz and Scott Moore, and Parole Agents I’s Joe Basile and Nate Castro. The task force established a perimeter around the residence. After removing other occupants of the house, including minor children, agents entered the home.

The first one in was Agent Castro. Upon entering the garage, Vue opened fire on the team and shot Castro, who was protected by a bullet-resistant vest that no doubt saved his life

Agents continued to respond to Vue while covering the injured Castro, even stepping into the line of fire to prevent Vue from entering the rest of the apartment. Vue ran outside and continued to shoot at the task force officers until he was shot and killed.

In addition to Castro, Fresno County Sheriff’s Deputy Robert McEwen and a Deputy U.S. Marshal were wounded by Vue. All three recently received the Law Enforcement Purple Heart, issued by the U.S. Marshal Service, in recognition of their actions.

The Law Enforcement Purple Heart is an American law enforcement medal issued to officers who are wounded or killed in the line of duty, its color representing bravery, courage and honor.

Triple Shooting – Killed – James Arthur Franklin (Kingston, NC)

James Arthur Franklin

KINSTON, N.C. — One man was killed Tuesday afternoon and two people were wounded in a shooting in Kinston, police said.

Officers responded to a report of shots fired at 205 E. Capitola Ave. shortly before 1:30 p.m. and found James Arthur Franklin, 20, dead and Dexter Bradshaw, 21, and Taishianna Hall, 20, suffering from gunshot wounds.

Bradshaw was taken to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville, and Hall was taken to Lenoir Memorial Hospital in Kinston for treatment. Their conditions weren’t known Tuesday evening.

Suggs said Hall was her son’s girlfriend. The couple were living in Greensboro, but came down to Kinston Tuesday because Hall had a court appearance. The couple then visited family members on Capitola Avenue. But when they, along with their best friend, Bradshaw, got into a car to leave, someone began firing shots into the vehicle, Suggs said.
